 Some of the other organisations we partner with include:

In October 2021, MinRes announced it was extending its support of Telethon with a $10 million commitment over the following five years.

This donation allows MinRes to support a range of worthy beneficiaries, including:

Wheels For Hope

A WA charity changing the lives of people living with disability by giving them wheelchair accessible vehicles on a loan basis.

With MinRes’ support, Wheels for Hope has granted the gift of mobility to more than 40 WA families over the past year.

Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre

This world-leading facility helps people with Type 1 diabetes and their families face the daily challenges of diabetes with confidence.

With MinRes’ support, the Family Centre assists more than 2,000 WA families each year with education, connection, clinical care and wrap-around social support – including WA’s only full-time dedicated psychology service for people impacted by the condition.

Yawardani Jan-ga

MinRes is the Principal Partner of Yawardani Jan-ga, an Equine Assisted Learning research program providing trauma-informed, culturally secure, strengths-based support to Aboriginal children and young people.

Supported by Murdoch University, the program is based in Broome and managed by Professor Juli Coffin.

These initiatives include:

The Early Moves Project

The Wal-Yan Respiratory Research Centre

The Move to Improve Research Project

A Rare Care Centre at Perth Children’s Hospital

A range of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit equipment

Hannah’s House

This incredible organisation supports children and young people with life-limiting and complex conditions and their families by offering care, play therapies, education and other complementary services.

With our support, Hannah’s House is providing in-home respite care and playtime programs to families in the Perth and Peel regions.

MinRes is a premier partner of the West Coast Eagles and naming rights sponsor of their headquarters and state-of-the-art training base, Mineral Resources Park.

Our partnership has helped establish Mineral Resources Park as a community facility and provide a permanent home to the Waalitj Foundation and the West Coast Eagles’ community outreach program.

MinRes is a long-term supporter of the Harry Perkins Institute for Medical Research, a leading WA medical research centre dedicated to tackling some of the world’s biggest health issues.

In 2022, MinRes extended its partnership for a further three years, taking its total contribution to cardiovascular research at the Harry Perkins Institute to $2.25 million.

In particular, MinRes’ funding supports Dr Elena de Juan Pardo in developing 3D printed heart valves. Cardiovascular disease affects millions of people worldwide, including around one in eight older Australians.

The 3D-printed heart valves that Dr Juan Pardo has developed do not require invasive surgery, replicate the body’s cells and will never need replacing. In a recent milestone, this technology is set to be commercialised in Australia to help millions of people globally.

Starlight Children’s Foundation aims to brighten the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children and young people.

In 2023, MinRes and Starlight celebrated 10 years of a valued partnership that has helped grant more than 230 Starlight Wishes to sick kids across WA.

In addition to financial support, MinRes backs in the mental health of Starlight’s superhero performers who bring happiness to kids in hospital and at home – each known as Captain Starlight.

Every quarter, MinRes is proud to host Starlight’s Captain Connection Training program at our headquarters.

Lifeline is a 24-hour suicide prevention provider that is available to all Australians experiencing a personal crisis. MinRes is proud to be one of Lifeline WA’s largest corporate strategic partners. In the calendar year to September 2023, MinRes’ funding facilitated the training of 25 volunteer crisis supporters, who collectively answered more than 6,200 calls for help.

MinRes’ partnership with Lifeline WA is deeply entrenched on its sites, with the 13 11 14 crisis support number emblazoned on its NextGen 2 crusher at the Mount Whaleback iron ore mine, on a crane in the Pilbara and on a range of PPE shirts.

These serve as important reminders for those working on or visiting sites to talk openly about mental health and seek help when they need it.

MinRes continues to work with Lifeline WA to promote mental wellbeing among its workforce, through a range of internal events, visits to its regional operations and training.

To date, more than 260 MinRes employees have completed a two-day Mental Health First Aid training course delivered by Lifeline WA qualified trainers, equipping them with the tools to provide initial help to family, friends or colleagues who are experiencing a mental health challenge.

Youth Focus is a leading not-for-profit organisation that supports young Western Australians who experience mental health challenges.

In 2023, MinRes and Youth Focus celebrated 10 years of a partnership that has helped thousands of young people across WA access mental health services and programs, at no cost to them or their families.

With MinRes’ support, Youth Focus provided free and accessible professional counselling services to more than 3,500 young people across WA in the calendar year to September 2023. 

MinRes is proud to be a long-term partner of Ronald McDonald House Charities WA, which helps sick kids and their families stay together and close to the medical care they need in Perth.

For almost eight years, MinRes has employed two chefs who cook dinner for families staying in the Nedlands House and Perth Children’s Hospital House every night of the year. In the past 12 months alone, they prepared more than 30,000 meals.

Chefs Tommy and Zi also support the ‘Home for Dinner’ volunteering program, which invites groups from the community to help prepare the evening meal.

MinRes is the founding partner of the McGovern Foundation’s Wanderer Program, which helps young people complete 50 hours of supervised driving needed to obtain their P plates.

Not having access to a vehicle or the means to pay for driving lessons can make it near impossible for young people to get their provisional driver’s licence. To tackle this, trained driver mentors work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and disadvantaged youth to help them access safe vehicles, obtain their learner’s permit and complete the required hours.

In 2023, the program celebrated its second anniversary after helping 167 people get their P plates, with 86% of graduates going on to secure a job.

In late 2022, the program expanded from the Perth-metro area to Northam, Narrogin, Katanning and Kalgoorlie-Boulder. 

Shooting Stars is an education engagement program for Aboriginal girls and young women, working within schools across metro, regional and remote WA and SA.

The program helps more than 1,000 participants strengthen their confidence and cultural identity, while cultivating positive attitudes towards school.

In May 2022, MinRes built on this long-standing partnership by becoming the principal partner of Shooting Stars’ Deadly Minds Matter program across 22 sites.

This new program helps participants develop emotional wellbeing skills and preventative mental health strategies, so that they can adapt to life’s challenges as they grow. 

MinRes is an inaugural donor to the Foundation for the WA Museum’s International Exhibition Fund, supporting the WA Museum Boola Bardip to bring world-class exhibitions and programs to WA.

This includes the recent Dinosaurs of Patagonia exhibition, which was attended by more than 114,000 visitors.

MinRes recognises museums play a key role in educating people about our past, our present and what’s happening in the world around us. 

For the past two years, MinRes has joined forces with Foodbank WA and the West Coast Eagles to support the Million Meal Challenge, which aims to provide one million meals to Western Australians struggling to put food on the table.

In 2023, MinRes matched every donation from Eagles members and the WA community, up to $50,000. Members of the MinRes team also volunteered on game day to take donations from the crowd.

Earlier in the year MinRes also provided a $100,000 donation to Foodbank WA to help feed fellow Western Australians doing it tough during the cost-of-living crisis. 

MinRes is the masthead sponsor of the National Indigenous Times’  (NIT) lifestyle section – Style Up.

In November 2022, the 100 per cent Indigenous-owned newspaper expanded nationwide and now includes a dedicated lifestyle lift out showcasing and celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ fashion, art, design, film, literature, theatre and events.

MinRes is proud to provide financial and in-kind support to help NIT create a national platform for First Nations creatives to share their talents and grow their business. 

MinRes is proud to partner with Ruah Community Services in support of its landmark Ruah Centre for Women and Children – a new safe haven for those experiencing family and domestic violence.

Over three years, MinRes will commit $1.5 million to fund five Koorta Guides at the facility in central Perth.

‘Koorta’ is the Noongar word for ‘trusted friend’ and reflects the role of the guides as the key first point of contact for the centre’s clients.

The Ruah Centre is the first facility of its kind in Western Australia to provide crisis accommodation and access to holistic, life-changing services in one location.

Koorta Guides will help clients connect with services they need, including healthcare, child protection, income support and housing.
